In the winter, Utah’s mountains become a playground for snow enthusiasts looking for the best ski destinations around. Visitors from all over the world flock to the powder at Utah’s ski areas, while others prefer backcountry adventures, like snowmobiling, snowshoeing, nordic skiing or ski touring. The 2002 Winter Olympic games, held mainly in Salt Lake City and Park City helped to secure Utah’s reputation as one of the world’s best ski destinations, and these premier winter resort facilities continue to train amateur and elite athletes alike, making for a remarkable travel experience. It’s one thing to say you went skiing in Utah, but how about taking a ride in the Comet Bobsled with icy turns at 80 mph, nordic skiing on portions of the Olympic course at Soldier Hollow trail or lacing up skates to take laps with your kids on “The Fastest Ice on Earth” at the Olympic Oval, just 30 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City.
